T3 Microfiber LUXE Turban Towel: $20
Whether mom is air-drying or heat styling, T3’s Microfiber LUXE Turban Towel is a major time saving must have. Waiting for your hair to dry can feel like, well, waiting for hair to dry. This speeds up the most annoying part of hair washing, so you can start the day already. Baby or not, the only drip you should be dealing with is your OOTD.
T3 Cura Hair Dryer: $235
If you do decide to blow dry, getting an efficient dryer will save you HOURS. We love the T3 Cura Hair Dryer for working overtime (so we save time) and fighting frizz while hair is drying, thanks to an ion generator.
Sexture Beach Look Shampoo: $25
A shampoo that texturizes? We’re in. This two-in-one moisturizing and texturizing shampoo is enough to give you a beachy, effortless look sans conditioner. Kaolin clay absorbs any excess oil so you don’t need to fret being greasy, while key ingredient zeolite fights frizz and detoxifies without over-drying. The result is a multi-step beachy look, literally while still in the shower.
Miriam Quevado HYDRA PURE BEAUTY CREAM: $60
Damaged hair needs extra TLC—but even if moms are too time-strapped for tenderness, they can still inject some softness into manes in just one step. Miriam Quevado’s HYDRA PURE multi-benefit cream transforms tresses with ultra-hydrating white caviar, keratin, actual precious stones, amino acid, edelweiss flower, baobab oil, hyaluronic acid and (OMFG, really?) encapsulated Swiss glacial water. This cocktail of wow ingredients combats thermal aging caused by heat styling, dehydration, intense temperatures, photo-aging, chemicals and pollutants—all the icky stuff that goes hand-in-hand with existing. But now, all it takes is one crucial cream to leave hair shiny and silky faster than you can change a diaper.
Hot Sexy Hair Flash Me Quicky Blow Dry Spray: $18.95
The Hot Sexy Hair Flash Me Quicky Blow Dry Spray cuts drying time by 50%, which means mamas get 50% more time to spend keeping a tiny human alive, or any other thing on their massive to-do list.
EVA NYC Mane Magic 10-in-1 Primer: $12
Any product that covers ten key hair steps in one unassuming spray—that also acts as a heat protecting primer, is basically a Holy Grail that moms will want with them in each and every time-crunched situation, such as… the morning.
SEEN Power Bundle: $70
Maybe the mom in your life doesn’t have time to wash her face anymore—and that’s ay okay, as long as she’s washing her hair with SEEN. The luxury dermatologist-designed hair care actually works wonders for skin AND hair. Turns out our your hair products can actually clog pores, and are largely haven’t untested on hypersensitive scalps. Fortunately, SEEN Shampoo, Conditioner and Blow-Out Creme are clinically proven to be non-comedogenic (meaning they won’t clog pores) and work on all hair types, as well as hair that’s been color treated, for cleaner and softer hair and skin.
OUAI Rose Hair & Body Oil: $32.00
This skin and hair power oil will keep overworked moms smelling AMAZING (who has time for fragrance?) while keeping skin as soft as baby’s, stopping split ends in their tracks, repairing damage and adding undeniable shine. We recommend stashing the travel size version in a diaper bag to care for skin and tresses on the go.
